[embedded content] Tequila Works announced today that Rime is releasing on May 26 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, priced at $29.99 USD/€34.99/£29.99 through both retail and digital stores. The Nintendo Switch version will arrive “shortly afterward,” priced at $39.99 USD/€44.99/£39.99. Re-revealed earlier this year as a multi-platform title, Tequila Works says their goal with Rime “was not only to create an enchanting and engaging adventure, but to craft a game where you see the world through the eyes of a child. We decided to move in this direction because there’s something so universal about it; after all, we were all children at some point.” Here’s what to expect from Rime: Rime is a single-player puzzle adventure game about discovery, experienced through the eyes of a young boy who awakens on a mysterious island after shipwrecking off its coast. Players must navigate the island’s secrets by making use of light, sound, perspective and even time. Inspired by the rugged, sunbaked terrain of the Mediterranean coast, Rime paints its breathtaking world with a fusion of vibrant colours and moving musical undertones to set the stage for the deeply personal journey that awaits within. Addressing the higher price tag of the Switch version, Tequila Works said, READ FULL…

Tequila Works Gives an Overview of Rime’s PS4 Pro Enhancements, Says It Wants to Balance It Out

Rime developer Tequila Works has said that it’s targeting a frame-rate and resolution of 30fps/1080p on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One and although the game will offer a higher frame-rate on the PS4 Pro, the studio wanted to achieve a balance between “having more frame rate than in a normal PS4 but adding some visual improvements that helped Rime to look even better.” Speaking to Wccftech, Lead Progammer Carlos Vázquez said that the increase in frame-rate for PS4 Pro will vary between 5-10fps “depending on the game’s area.” Additionally, he gave a quick rundown of improvements as follows: –          Much better quality of the shadows.–          Temporal antialiasing has better quality, obtaining more definition and quality in the AA filter.–          The LODs’ distance has been tweaked to increase the visual quality of fauna and flora during the time they are rendered.–          More definition in the texture filter.–          The VFX, shaders, materials and translucency has better quality too so we can have, for example, more realistic metals, better screen space reflections and better detail level in general.
